As Art Goes

| December 1, 2011 | Parties

Paintings and flash mobs get the party started at Bass. You can always count on the Bass Museum of Art to bring out the crowds. But even by Bass standards, the turnout for the opening of its Vanishing Points exhibition was larger than usual. More than 500 guests showed up to preview the exhibit, an assemblage of works from the Debra and Dennis Scholl Collection that explored how artists view and perceive painting today. As they moved through the museum to view the 43 works on exhibit, art aficionados enjoyed cocktails and music by DJ Le Commandant. The guest list was heavy on art VIPs: Debra and Dennis Scholl were there, of course, alongside local artists like Frances Trombly, Leyden Rodriguez-Casanova, Naomi Fisher, Jim Drain, Jacin Giordano and Jose Bedia. Conversations came to a stop when a crowd of about 30 guests gathered in the courtyard for a surprise flash mob finale, a three-minute dance to “DJ Got Us Falling in Love.” Photography by Nathan Valentine
